About

The owners of the Market Street Inn are Steve and Carol Stenbro.Exterior1

Steve and Carol have been in the innkeeping business since 1995. Their most notable guest was President George W. Bush on October 28, 2006!

Steve is a retired toolmaker of Ford Motor Company. His interests include bicycling, traveling, genealogy and restoring old houses. Steve is also a member of the Falls of Ohio Archaeological Society and Historic Preservation Board.

Carol has worked in collections and served numerous years as a volunteer with Girl Scouts, church groups, the Red Hat Society, and is a past President of the Indiana Bed & Breakfast Association.

Carol’s interest in cooking and decorating, and their interest in staying in historic Bed & Breakfasts when they travel, is what led them to the innkeeping business!
